    Q936: What arrangements are in place for surrendering air weapons?

    Police Scotland will always accept surrendered weapons of any kind and arrange for their destruction.

    It may be a good idea to phone ahead to your local police office to ensure it is open and they will be able to provide specific advice and may arrange to have specially trained officers who will be to accept and make safe surrendered air weapons.

    Remember if you are transporting a weapon in public ensure it is adequately covered to prevent causing alarm to members of the public.

    Please note that there is no compensation for people who need to dispose of their air weapons.

    If you must dispose of your air weapons, it may be better to sell them to someone authorised to possess them, such as an air weapon certificate holder or a Registered Firearms Dealer.
